More Ben Howard More Ben Howard

Two of the more exciting names on this Splendour In The Grass bill are Michael Kiwanuka and Ben Howard. Whilst on the surface the two couldn't seem further apart, Kiwanuka sewing together the soulful threads of Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye by way of Bob Dylan, and Howard a troubadour of the acoustic ilk who's amassed a huge following amongst surfers, they both call London label Communion home.

As such Communion, run by Mumford & Sons' Ben Lovett, are taking the opportunity of being in Australia to showcase their artists together in more intimate shows. Michael Kiwanuka and Ben Howard, joined by Boy & Bear's Tim Hart, will play The Factory Theatre, Sydney Tuesday 24 July and The Corner Hotel, Melbourne Wednesday 25. Tickets go on sale 9am Friday 4 May.
